The Bluetooth Special Interest Group just approved a Samsung Android phone that sounds very much like the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S. To quote the Bluetooth SIG description:

I9000 is a Full Touch phone with reinforced features. 4.0 inch OLED screen perform expanding full touch to follow TouchWIZ 3.0. It embedded Android OS. It supports EDGE/GPRS Quad-Band (850/900/1800/1900).

The screen size, full touch nature and Bluetooth 3.0 capabilities of the "I9000" meets up exactly with the Samsung Galaxy S. However, the Galaxy S was said to have a Super AMOLED screen but we're going to chalk it up as some poor typing mistake rather than disregard this as the Galaxy S. And like what we've seen in CTIA, the Bluetooth SIG filing re-iterates its EDGE/GPRS bands but doesn't specify its 3G bands. Hopefully, Samsung will come to their senses and figure out the US 3G situation cause this Galaxy S is hot. [via phonescoop]

Samsung Galaxy S approved by Bluetooth SIG?

The code numbe of the Galaxy S is indeed i9000, and Super AMOLED is just a marketing name - the display still basically is an OLED, just like modern LCDs are technically much more advanced than the earlier ones (remember DSTN?) but still are called LCD. :)
